Quotes & Highlights

The Big Apple Circus has been a hit with Goldstar members in New York and Boston.
“The finest up-close circus in America.” -Variety __

Description

Shakespeare wrote, “If music be the food of love, play on!” So begins the all-new show from Big Apple Circus, Play On!—an extravaganza of astonishment and humor where the music is a mix of classical, rock and soul, and the food is popcorn. It’s an entertaining show for all ages.

Big Apple Circus annually presents a new show featuring renowned circus artists from around the world. This year’s performers come from America, Armenia, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, England, France, Germany, Italy and Russia. Artists include Carrie Harvey, Barry Lubin, Virgile Peyramaure, Sarah Schwarz and Christian Atayde Stoinev.

About the Ticket Supplier: Big Apple Circus

As a leading presenter of family entertainment and a not-for-profit performing arts institution, our nationwide performances and community programs have made our 34-year history far-reaching and full.

It all began in Kent, England, in 1974, when American entertainers and Big Apple Circus co-founders Paul Binder and Michael Christensen became juggling partners and took to the street corners of Europe. Their comedic juggling act was a hit, and they soon found themselves on the stage of the presitigous Nouveau Cirque de Paris. They returned home to America in 1976 with a vision: to entertain and improve the lives of millions. One year later, they found a site for the first tent-raising in Battery Park, New York, and went on to create the award-winning, not-for-profit Big Apple Circus.
